Codornices Park Creative Collaboration
A participatory community arts exploration in collaboration with the natural environs of Berkeley’s Codornices Park.
A Samavesha Community Program event brought to you by environmental artist Zach Pine (Berkeley, CA) and dance artist Karin Carlson (Austin, TX).
Join us and co-create these activities aimed to make us exuberantly connected to and in love with all living things:
Clearing the Way & Setting the Stage
Pulling out invasive ivy to make way for new native vegetation, and using the long strands of ivy to create our temporary outdoor arena.
Dancing Chain of Water
Watering restored native plants creatively, using water from the creek nearby.
Loving the California Bay Laurel with Sculpture
A special Laurel tree inspires and supports ephemeral sculpture-making.
And more, including improvisational music, theater, and interdisciplinary creations in collaboration with the place
This is a participatory environmental art gathering in service to the natural world. It’s not a performance, it’s a creative engagement with each other and the place. Members of the public will be invited to join in as they wish.
Location, Transportation, and Parking:
Meet in the park (map: http://goo.gl/maps/ZdHWJ) between the basketball courts and the concrete slide. If you drive, leave time to find street parking and arrive promptly. A 10 minute ride on the AC transit #65 bus can take you directly to the park, leaving Downtown Berkeley at 1:30pm (see http://tinyurl.com/mofxv39 ). If you are late, walk up the hill along the creek to find us!
What To Bring (encouraged but optional):
A small watering can, teapot, or mug for the watering plants in the “Dancing Chain of Water”, and gardening gloves to pull out ivy for “Clearing the Way & Setting the Stage.”
